Toyota is readying some changes for its Tundra pickup.
Spied testing in southern California, the 2018 Toyota Tundra is expected to make its debut sometime this year sporting an updated front end to keep the truck fresh until the next-generation model arrives sometime around 2020. Given that only the front end is heavily camouflaged, it’s expected the updated Tundra will have less revisions than what it received for 2014.
But do expect to see a new grille, hood, headlights and revised trim pieces, while engine updates could also be in the works. There’s the possibility that the new 10-speed automatic transmission found in the Lexus LC and LS models could find its way to the Tundra, although it’s unclear if it will arrive now or with the next-generation model.
The current second-generation Toyota Tundra was originally introduced at the 2006 Chicago Auto Show. It soldiered on until the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, where Toyota introduced the refreshed model with quite a few revisions. Expect the changes to the 2018 model to be more subtle and refined compared to the previous refresh.
